Knicks legend Charles Oakley invites you to ante up for the Children’s Museum’s first-ever Virtual Poker Tournament on Thursday, April 8 at 6:30pm. Utilizing the same platform used by the World Poker Tour’s ClubWPT, this evening of No-Limit Texas Hold’em will see CMEE supporters putting their card skills to the test as they compete for a seat at the final table. In addition to bragging rights, the night’s top performing players will win prizes like Diplomatico Rum, a basketball signed by NBA Hall-of-Famer Walt “Clyde” Frasier (plus a gift card to spend in his celebrated Hell’s Kitchen restaurant), or dinner at Scarpetta Beach at Gurney’s Inn.
Money raised during the event will directly benefit the Museum’s COVID-19 Response Efforts. Tickets start at $300/player. Purchase your own dedicated table for 8 players – branded with your corporate logo – for $2,500.
For more information, please contact Lara@CMEE.org.
